After doing some research, I found the film that both of you are describing:

Death Zones (1975) Seven Oaks Productions

Unfortunately, it's still under copyright and I can't post it at the Internet Archive.

It's made by Gene Starbecker who also made another notorious bus safety film - aimed at teens - called "And Then It Happened". It's a brutal film with lots of noisy, wisecracking kids and catastrophe. I'll be showing this film at a couple of shows in New York on Sept 28th and 29th (more info www.avgeeks.com).

Indeed that's it. Here's one place where you can purchase it from, along with a description of each sketch story (ah, looks like my memory isn't so bad!).

I wonder if it was produced in 1977 or 1975, I'd guess the latter. That's quite pricey for a 20 minute educational video, maybe I can find it at a local library's video section (if there is such a thing).

Interesting it was broken up into 3 parts, with part 2 and 3 meant only for teenagers and young adults. Why on earth did my elementary school show all 3 parts, regardless of what grade you were in? No wonder I had nightmares. :)

Well...that mystery is solved! Thanks for the help! Now to see if I can't track down a copy to watch one of these days...
